(1947) VUL­CAIN CRICKET

Plaza Watch International - - The 50 Most Influential -

The Cricket got its name from the sound it makes when the alarm rings. Then and now, the chirpy me­chan­i­cal ring of this first watch to in­te­grate an alarm func­tion was loud thanks to an ex­tra-thick mem­brane em­bed­ded in the case back. Popular with sev­eral pres­i­dents, in­clud­ing Richard Nixon.
